    The equilibrium state of a system consisting of a large number of strongly interacting electrons can be characterized by its density operator. This gives a direct access to the ground-state energy or, at finite temperatures, to the free energy of the system as well as to other static physical...

    The aim of the paper is to obtain new characterizations for exponential stability in mean square of stochastic variational systems in Hilbert spaces. Thus we will introduce a general concept of admissibility in variational stochastic case. An example of such a stochastic variational system is...
